We have refrained from giving any report of "the crop damage from the hailstorm that visited this section two, weeks ago. hop ing that the ' recuperating powers of favorable seasons would so mend the situation that that we would ! feel pretty well after all ; but two week's of fairly growing weather has done little toward re moving pur seuse of disappoint ment because of the irretrievable loss in the pbsent ;rop. The one-third to one-half of the cot ton crop that was. left us has made such little growth that it actually looks smaller than it did three weeks ago. Unless peo ple get one hundred dollars a bale for this year's cotton they will come out the small end of the horn. Carriker Cor. j Hall Black seeing that the hail had fixed his wheat sb he couldn't cut it, built a hog pen on wheels and had his hogs to move their washing to the wheat field. When they would eat all the wheat in the area of the pen they would move the pen on further, aud in this way they were perfectly sel sustaining. A neighbor told me that they even rolled their porta ble tenement from the field to the house whenever they wanted slop, but he must riot ask me to vouch for the second part of this story, Carriker Cor.

Wheat harvest will be over this week in almost every community. As a usual thing the crop is better than expected, although in some places it is very poof. We hear that Albert Whortou, who lives near Clemmons, suffered the loss of his barn and .much of its contents Sunday afternoon be tween 2 and 3 o'clock. Lightning struck the building daring a ter rific storm and as the family was shut up closely in the house, nothing was known of the fire until a colored, man living some distance away" brought the word. Besides feedstuff and vehicles, seven head of horses perished in the flames. W. M. Cross, engineer at the power house, denies that on the night of the fire at Mr. Burk head's there was insufficient steam and therefore no pressure atfirst. He says, moreover, that he sound ed the alarm whistle promptly on receiving the 'phone message. The . trouble, he claims, was that the firemen did not cut off the standpipe so that the pumps could work directly on the mains, and that until this was done, both pumps were running full speed, pumping into the standpipe. In the melee that night the top of the hideous fire whistle was blown clear off, which Mr. Cross main tains without fear of successful contradiction, is proof positive that he did have some steam on. Vice president J. M. Culp, of the Southern, announces that the double track between Salisbury and Greensboro will be completed and put in use by the first of the month. Some paits of the new track have been used for some time. This section' of the South era, or from-iJharlotfce to Dan ville, is the busiest portion of the road and is often so full of trains that it is dfficult to handle them. Long freights have stood on sid ings throughout a night, unable to get into Spencer. This double track is of inestimable value to this part of the country. J. G. Walser, who spent a lit tle time at the Jamestown expo sition, tells us that the big show is all right. It is near comple- tion, ana is reaay ior me most critical person now. He says that the tale of overcharges at the ho tels and other places is not true now. You get a room from fifty cents up and the restaurants give you anything you want at any price. An average citizen can go down and stay for not more than two dollars a day, and surely. tbat is little enough to see the- great est show on earth. A Curious Cotton Bloom.

Md., June 26. President Roosevelt and members of his official family "were han dled without gloves by speakers at the tenth annual meeting of the Afro-American Council, which began a three-days' convention here today. Senator Foraker was a favorite ani every mention of his name was received with vociferous ap plause. Bishop Alexander W&t ters, of Jersey City, president of the council, made the principal address at the night session. He called the Ohio Senator the "no blest Roman of them all," and places him in the same category with Charles SumneT. He claimed that th Vfo&ien-Jd the negro race art injusticlf in his last meg- I sage to Congress, saying hev re ferred to tnes negro as a race of criminals. Rev. S.

Brouhtou, who has-been conducting revival ser vices in the First Baptist church here for ten day1 or more, brought his meeting to a close this morn ing. During the course of his sermon he made an attack on the, Charlotte Observer because of cer tain editorial utterances in that paper with reference to hi cru sade against cigarette smoking, which were copied in a local newspaper. . W , Mr Broughton U'said that Hue Charlotte Observer had b8en try ing to destroy the force of his fight againBt cigarettes for ten years. There were two reasons for this one because the men who manage the paper' are liquor ied cigarette men ; another rea son, he said, is because the paper is a sheet of the American Tobac co Company. . In spite of the Charlotte Ob server he said he still stuck to his statement that a man who smokes cigarettes for ten years will lie and steal. Special to Charlotte Observer-.

He wasa gradu ate of Trinity College, having ta ken his master's degre'it h i s month, and for three jweeks has been in the employ of the Ameri can Tobacco Company.

In addition to his athletic work in the college he won honors in his studies, was president of his class in his seni- or year, manager oi tne innity Archive and also manager of the South Atlantic Quarterly. He made good at all these. Soon after leaving college he accepted a position wit h t h e American Tobacco Company . in Durham aud was assigned to learn the business. This morning at about 10 o'clock he went to the manager and told him tha his i services were not sucn aB to give him (Smith) satisfaction and sug gested resigning. He -was cheer ed up and told to go to a t doctor and get some help' that would re- ieve him of his depression and meiancnoiy irom wnicn no was suffering. He did as directed and then went to his room.

Argu ment in the trial of former Judge Wjlliam G. Loving foT the mur der of Theodore Estes was begun late this afternoon after a. day spent by counsel for both sides in the preparation of instructions, and a wrangle over them before the court. The instructions as read by Judge BarksdaJe, discuss ed murder, its various degrees, the question of reasonable doubt, the time allowed for a man 's an gry passions to subside and espe cially insanity. The( following instruction "pre pared by the prosecution touch ing on the "unwritten law" was stricken out by the,court : "No man under the protection of the law has a right to be the avenger of his own wrongs; if they be of a nature for which the laws of society give him an adei quate remedy thither should he resort ; but be they of any nature whatsoever, he has no right to avenge them except in the man ner prescribed by the lasThe unwritten law by which iB meant the right of the citizen to become f he avenger of his own wrongs in a manner not authorized by law or against the law has no place in the criminal jurisprudence of Virginia." Were Foraker Hade President. Just suppose Foraker were to get the nomination and be elected president. What a rush there would be of neg roes to the White House seek i n g feder al offices ; and many would get them, especially in the South. Mr. Foraker's election would be a calamity to the conn try. It would reopen the race question in the South with all the intensity and bitterness of reconstruction days, and would bring to the white people of the North such experiences in race antagonism as they have jlever dreamed of. We do not supnose he would appoint many negroes to office in those states, but his election would give to the negroes there more than at the South the feeling of having won the victory over the whites in a contest based on the race question. Mr. Foraker's speeches to negroes in Ohio were . of the moBt violent and race prejudice producing kind. They showed an animosity toward the South which it is hard t3 realize that a citizen of this country -could entertain against the people of any section.

Wood fell in a vat of boiling water while working at the veneering plant of Kincaid & Knox at Cleveland. He sued for damages and got a verdict of $1 000. The defendants appealed but the appeal has been withdrawn ani the case settled on the pay ment of $1,375.

Some sort of an - insect has de stroyed many of the elm trees in Statesville, but up to this time the maples have been- immune.

A destructive rainstorm visited the Amity section of Iredell andJ contiguous v territory late Satur day afternoon, and Sunday after noon a heavy rain itorm accompa nied by much electricity and con siderable wind, passed over States ville and environs. In addition to the serious and fatal results of these storms lands were badly washed and much wheat in the shock was blown down and dam aged. The weather laBt week was fine for crops and a period of hot dry weather now will be very ben eficial. The weather has been fine this week, but we're almost afraid to mention it lest it change by the time this item is "read. Harvest has been in full blast and weather eruditions for saving the wheat have been favorable. A few more days of sunshine will mean that an excellent wheat erop has been saved in good condition, and if the warm weatner continues the- f corn and cotton will grow so fast that they'll soon male up for lost time. Let's look on the bright side now. Conditions are never quite so bad as they seem and this may yet be' a good crop year, notwithstanding the unfavorable conditions in the spring.
